Can you turn off PS5 adaptive triggers and feedback?


While it may not appear so at first glance, the DualSense controller is built on the PS4’s DualShock 4 controller, which is easily the best controller in PlayStation’s history. It takes everything to a new level. But currently, there has been a lot of talk about PS5 adaptive triggers. 

The color has been modified to a two-tone design to match the PS5, and the bulk has been somewhat enlarged and rounded off. The thumbsticks, on the other hand, are in the same place, and there is still a touch panel at the top. A lightbar is also back. However, this time it’s centered on the touchpanel rather than on the top.

The buttons and D-pad are made of clear plastic. However, the iconic symbols are no longer colored differently. The grips, on the other hand, aren’t gripping because they’re pretty smooth. 

The controller uses the USB-C standard to create a charging port that can be used with a variety of cords. The Share button is no longer available. However, a new “Create” button that is nearly identical to the old one has replaced it. The location is the same as the share button.

It does, however, introduce a new Creation Studio tool that gives users a lot more flexibility over their screen captures and films.

The DualSense controller includes its microphone array, as well as a mono speaker, like before. These are also employed for in-game play, which the devs will undoubtedly delve into further in the future.

What are PS5 adaptive triggers?

A fresh disassembly, noticed by Polygon, demonstrates how the adaptive triggers use a specifically geared motor to produce realistic tension. TronicsFix has dismantled the DualSense controller to give us a behind-the-scenes look at the new triggers. When no current passes through the motor, the triggers feel like ordinary ones; nevertheless, when current is applied to the motor, tension and resistance are generated for the triggers.

As you tug on the rope to go through the stages, you can feel the tension. At one point in the game, you are transformed into a loaded spring, and you can feel the tension of spring in the triggers.

What is haptic feedback?

When you touch something on your phone, it vibrates the entire device, giving you a haptic sensation.

The physical action of utilizing a touch screen interface is known as haptic feedback or “haptics” for short. The user receives feedback in the form of a physical response, most commonly a vibration, when they touch the screen when the touch screen button was pressed and eliminates any doubt.

Why turn off PS5 adaptive triggers and feedback:

The many aspects may be too much for younger players to comprehend at first. The DualSense controller’s battery drains faster when adaptive triggers and haptic feedback are activated.

Here’s how to disable PS5 adaptive triggers and haptic feedback if you fall into any of these camps or want to get more hours out of your controller.

How to turn off PS5 adaptive triggers:


  1. Go to the Settings screen on the PS5 from the home screen. The small cog in the top right corner of the screen allows you to access this.
  2. Scroll down to the Accessories section of the Settings menu. This is the fifth choice from the bottom of the list.

When the Accessories screen appears, scroll down to the left-hand menu and select Controllers. The option from the top, just below General.

  1. Although the descriptions on the Controllers screen are a little unclear, adaptive triggers are regulated by the “Trigger Effect Intensity” option. To proceed, select this option.
  2. You may adjust the adaptive triggers on your DualSense pad by selecting Strong (the default option), Medium, Weak, or of from the Trigger Effect Intensity submenu. Select Off if you wish to totally disable adaptive triggers rather than only decrease the impact of the functionality.
  3. Adaptive triggers on your currently connected DualSense pad will be disabled after this is done.
  4. The option isn’t universal, though, and you’ll have to alter it for each PS5 pad you use. A rep for all other DualSense controllers you own, as well as any you connect in the future.

How to turn off Haptic feedback on PS5:

  • To access the PS5 home screen, turn on your PS5 and then login into your profile.
  • Select the settings button in the top right corner of the display from the home screen.
  • Select Accessories from the configuration menu after pressing X to confirm the option.
  • To access the Controllers-specific menu, press X.
  • You can adjust the haptic feedback intensity in the following menu. You can choose from high, medium, or weak settings, or you can fully eliminate the feature.

Other things that we know – and therefore don’t know – about the DualSense controller for the PlayStation 5


  • You’ll need several DualSense controllers to play local multiplayer because the DualShock 4 isn’t compatible with PS5 games.
  • On that topic, we still have no idea how much a standalone DualSense controller will cost. This information will most likely be announced alongside the PlayStation 5’s official price.
  • While we now have a better idea of how the DualSense will look, we still don’t know if it will be available in many colors. The DualSense’s use of two colors allows for a larger variety of designs than prior PlayStation controllers, so it’ll be fascinating to see if Sony capitalizes on this.
  • The DualSense’s exact battery life is another crucial piece of information that remains a mystery to us. Depending on how you use it, the DualShock 4 has a battery life of four to eight hours. Given the DualSense’s new functions, it’ll be fascinating to see how its battery life compares to that of the DualShock 4.
  • I bet you all are still waiting to learn more about the new ‘Create’ button’s capabilities. It appears to contain many of the same features as the DualShock 4’s ‘Share’ button, such as the ability to snap screenshots, but it will be fascinating to see whether and how these functionalities have been expanded.
